Welcome to VPT. com

Vancouver Playback Theatre helps individuals, communities and organizations develop and thrive by bringing people together to share stories, deepen dialogue, discover connections, and build positive relationships.

    Using improvisation, intuition, movement and music, our troupe spontaneously re-enacts real stories from the lives of audience members. The "teller's" story is "played back" in dramatic, humourous, imaginative and deeply moving ways. The universality of our human experience is illuminated, building bridges of empathy and understanding.

Richmond in 3D is helping Richmond residents connect at a deeper level to talk about diversity and immigrant settlement issues, and to take actions to create a more welcoming and inclusive community.
